Assisted by a talented team of young Toronto filmmakers - Ilana Gutman, Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof, Maria Raponi, Jeremy Elder-Jubelin, and Greg Boa - Elder constructs a sophisticated montage of highly-processed imagery which transforms these images of horror into a weave of abstraction. The film's inspired sound collage draws upon an expansive range of pop culture and avant-garde sources. Like Elder's ‘The Book of All The Dead,’ ‘Crack, Brutal, Grief’ uses a series of dialectical concepts in opposition to probe a range of philosophical concerns related to the history of consciousness in the twentieth century.
